It's a blue, blue, world
I could go on and on about my political views, but it would would bore you silly.
I will leave you with the simple fact that I grew up in New England, in a house with a framed picture of JFK...I'm a Democrat girl, tried and true.
So you will also have to understand how trying and painful it was to be living smack dab in the middle of a "Red State"...after Ohio botched the last election, I felt that there was no hope.
Things have begun to change, the winds are blowing in that direction...hope came back. I went to sleep last night before all results were in for the state and country, it seemed that the Democrats were pulling ahead,, but the margin was slim.
I went to sleep last night and Ohio was red state...and when I woke in the morning, we were Blue.
Then today, Donald Rumsfeld resigned.
This is a happy moment. A hopeful moment. It is one of those rare times when I don't feel silly for loving and hating politics the way I do.
Now, to quote my friend Aaron's Blog...cross our fingers and hope Obama runs.
So, now that I have bored you to tears...I will bid you a fond farewell.
The piece featured today is the collage I did in conjunction with this weeks Creative Challenge, the theme was "Water". It was difficult for me, I had to branch out into a different color range, I used blue.
Now I am glad I did.
The painting is called "Dance of the Dying Swan" and it is available in my Etsy Shop.
